Stealth "Lay Back In The Cut"

Stealth "Lay Back In The Cut": 3rd leak from Stealth's 2nds, which drops on the 30th of April. Can't wait to hear the full project. Happy early birthday to you, Stealth.



previous Stealth "Definition Of Life"

Random "Pain In My Heart"

Random "Pain In My Heart" (prod. by EOM): Been a bit since I've heard some new shit from "aka @MegaRan", but this cut plays upon the trials and tribs of a relationship. Or not. The collaborative efforts of RandEOM (see what they did there?) will be dropping Language Arts, and EP idea that turned into some weird full album/comic book ting. I dunno; late Summer 2010, I might could have some details. Right now? Just dope music.

Kardi "AIDS Patient"

Kardi "AIDS Patient": You remember Kardi, right? Here's the homey going spazzville over the "I'm Ill" instrumental. Not much more to say - if you like your rhymers putting thought into the lyrics AND the way they are spit, this prodigy might be what you're trying to fuck with. Curveball status.

DJ Cable Vs. Joker & Ginz Vs. Three 6 Mafia "Stay Fly In Purple City"

DJ Cable Vs. Joker & Ginz Vs. Three 6 Mafia "Stay Fly In Purple City": Here's a blend that Cable hooked up for his Xtra Guest Mix for MistaJam. In his words, "This was originally done as a mashup for my BBC 1Xtra Guest Mix for Mistajam back in February. I figured that it worked so well, I though I'd make it into a proper blend. I've called it a quick hitter as it's only the first verse and chorus; the reason being that the rest of the acapella doesn't fit so well with the whole tune. Also, like myself, most DJs like to mix quickly, so it's always nice to have something short and sweet with a clean intro and outro.". Also looks like there's a Fuck Thugstep Vol. 2 on the way!? Win!

[preview] Hulked-Out Heroes #2

The first Hulked-Out Heroes comic wasn't really that ill to me. I tried sticking it out, but it ended up just seeming like another comic cashing in on Deadpool's shtick - but not really getting it. Not the way I saw a "Hulkpool" going, but to each his own. Newsarama has a preview of Hulked-Out Heroes #2 up; shouts to TDB.

Sene "Options"

Sene "Options" (prod. by Tranzformer): Here's another Reality Bites leak, courtesy of the homey J57. Love the old-school dream sequence loop in this. Love that dude really speaks that reality shit - and not just some "blue collar" raps, but really thought-provoking, alone by myself, evaluating my life type shit. But you already know that.

previous Sene "Follow Leaders"

jawnzap7 "Conundrums"

jawnzap7 "Conundrums": Some ill lyrical exorcisms from Philly's own @jawnzap7. When I fucked with more backrap than a lil' bit, this was the type of hype that I geeked off of. Back when I used to think I could rap and shit lol. This is taken from the "Conundrums"/"Lillypads" maxi-single, which is serving as a sampler of jawn's I Hate My Stupid Little Life album. Stream both below, and remember that Philly runs this.

Older cut that the MiLKMEN loved and wanted to do a video for.

J-Ro "Bodyguard"

J-Ro "Bodyguard": Damn, I always like hearing new shit from the Likwit. This cut is taken from the Ro-Hab: Get Addicted album sampler, and from the looks of it, dude is not only determined, but he's got some HEAT for you. This has been out for a bit, but I imagine a lot of you might not be up on it, so GET ADDICTED!

Shouts to @j_ro_alkaholiks for the heads up!

Theo Martins You Can't Do That On Television

DJ Premier's Official Statement On Guru

Via DJ Premier Blog:

IT WAS A SAD DAY FOR ME TO GET CONFIRMATION ON THE DEATH OF A MAN WHO I WILL CONTINUE TO CALL MY BROTHER, KEITH ELAM, BETTER KNOWN AS GURU OF THE LEGENDARY GANG STARR.

FROM 1988-2004, WE EXPERIENCED SO MUCH SUCCESS TOGETHER THAT WE WERE ABLE TO EXPAND OUR BUSINESSES INDEPENDENTLY AND GIVE EACH OTHER WHAT GURU CALLED “CREATIVE SPACE”, BEFORE PLANNING TO REUNITE FOR OUR 7TH LP WHEN THE TIME WAS RIGHT. TRAGICALLY, WE WILL NEVER REACH THAT DAY.

I’VE BEEN ASKED TO COMMENT ON A LETTER SPEAKING ILL OF ME WHICH WAS SUPPOSEDLY WRITTEN BY GURU IN HIS DYING DAYS. ALL I WILL SAY ABOUT IT IS THAT OUR TIME TOGETHER WAS BEAUTIFUL, WE BUILT A HIP HOP LEGACY TOGETHER, AND NO ONE CAN RE-WRITE HISTORY OR TAKE AWAY MY LOVE FOR HIM. ONE THING I WOULD NEVER DO IS PLAY AROUND WITH THE TRUTH ABOUT HIS LIFE.

I WILL CELEBRATE GURU’S LIFE… I WILL HONOR HIS MEMORY… I WILL GRIEVE WITH THE ELAM FAMILY OVER HIS UNTIMELY DEATH… I WILL REMEMBER THE GANG STARR FOUNDATION AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF GANG STARR WHO CAME BEFORE ME – WE ALL KNOW EACH OTHER… MOSTLY, I WILL CHERISH EVERYTHING WE CREATED TOGETHER AS GANG STARR, FOREVER. I’M GONNA MISS HEARING HIS SIGNATURE MONOTONE VOICE WHEN HE WALKS IN THE ROOM, BUT THE SONGS WILL ALWAYS BRING IT BACK TO ME….HIS RHYME FLOWS WERE INSANE, AND I WILL NEVER REMOVE HIM FROM MY HEART AND SOUL…….REST IN PEACE TO THE MAN WHO FELT “SATISFACTION FROM THE STREET CROWD REACTION” … I LOVE YOU GOO…….DJ PREMIER


Powerful words from a truly awesome individual. I hope we do get to hear a Guru/Gang Starr tribute mix from DJ Premier at some point. Rest in power, Guru.

DJ Megan Foxxx - HEAVY (Hosted By Armanni Reign)

Here's DJ Megan Foxxx's promo mix, HEAVY, that I mentioned the other day. It's hosted by Armanni Reign and features some sick sounds, including the Heroes & Villains remix of Gucci Mane's "Lemonade", Nero's "Innocence" and fire from Funtcase, Reso and many more! Hit the jump.
